  • McCain: Still clueless

    It's good to see that U.S. Sen. John McCainis still just as clueless as he was four years ago, but I'm sure the Chinese were not as amused as I was by his warnings that the "Arab Spring" was coming soon to China. It's too bad they didn't point out to...

    Same-sex marriage seals Obama's fate as a one-term president

  • The amazing, misquoting Mr. Romney
